Hi from Mike
I've been retired for 6 years, having worked as a systems analyst in the motor industry, in many functions including engineering analysis (I have a degree in engineering).
I've had some interesting cars in my time; a Mini which I 'cooperised' with a well tuned 998 engine; a Lancia Beta (a really lovely car and it didn't rust); a Lancia Trevi; a Lancia Y10.
And a few boring ones, like a Morris 1300 and a Rover 800.
Currently I have a Seat Arosa as daily driver; a Rover 75 CDTI diesel for holidays and sometimes using a caravan; and a Lotus Elite 4 seater, 1976, fun car (when it's running).
I'm a keen sailor, with a nice little 22ft sailing cruiser in which I race in the Thames Estuary area, with a degree of success (won the Southend Town Cup last year).
I also have an interest in hifi, and build valve electronics myself; with a very good analogue front end, I'm a 'vinyl junkie'. But I do have CD, and above all I love music.
I'm thinking of replacing the little Seat, considering Mito, which is why I've joined here; I'll ask my questions elsewhere on this Forum.
